A 76-year-old gran who led police on the slowest-ever car chase on the A12 is appealing against her driving ban.I thought pensioners were all hard up?
Caroline Turner’s legal fight is being funded by sales of a game, designed by a friend, that challenges players to get round the board without being disqualified from driving.Slowest....game....EVER!
She said: “I feel totally demoralised. The sentence was harsh and unjust.”Ummm, no. Not really. You could have killed someone. Possibly even yourself.
Friend and game creator Andrew Tucker is helping her with legal fees by donating £2.50 from each sale of Disqualified.She might have been 'visibly frail', but the near-tonne of steel and carbon-fibre she was driving wasn't, was it?
He said: “She has spoken to solicitors to see what can be done.
“I accept she did make an error and so does she.
“But the way they dealt with it was far too strong for an old lady who was visibly frail.”
And no, running alongside the car wasn't 'far too strong'; in fact, she was treated with (comparative) kid gloves.
They could have done much, much more.
